    Are you smarter than a 10 year old?

    10-year-old scholar takes Calif. college by storm

    DOWNEY, Calif. - With the end of another school year approaching, college sophomore Moshe Kai Cavalin is cramming for final exams in classes such as advanced mathematics, foreign languages and music. But Cavalin is only 10 years old. And at 4-foot-7, his shoes don't quite touch the floor as he puts down a schoolbook and swivels around in his chair to greet a visitor.

    "I'm studying statistics," says the alternately precocious and shy Cavalin, his textbook lying open on the living room desk of his parents' apartment in this quiet suburb east of Los Angeles.

    Within a year, if he keeps up his grades and completes the rest of his requirements, he hopes to transfer from his two-year program at East Los Angeles College to a prestigious four-year school and study astrophysics.

    One of his primary interests is "wormholes," a hypothetical scientific phenomenon connected to Albert Einstein's theory of relativity. It has been theorized that if such holes do exist in space, they could — in tandem with black holes — allow for the kind of space-age time travel seen in science fiction........

    someone should tell him to not waste his time with time travel; seen any "time-tourists" from the future?

    many kids these days are learning quicker, holding knowledge better, and pushing the envelope further then any generation before them. This isn't new. it's always been happening.

    watch and see as the next generations force us to change how we view. not just education, but in many facets we'll see evolution taking form..
    can't wait till we have something like children of the korn... the youth revolution!!

    Is it just coincidence that many of these kids come from a mother who claimed to be a victim of alien abduction?
